a special order of business asking the board of education to authorize the superintendent or disi gony to negotiate with the leader high school which is a non-profit 501 c3 corporation and enter into a lease agreement with a charter school grant for the use of the site located at 300 seneca avenue, san francisco, california. basically what we have here is an opportunity to allow leadership high school to move from its current location on the top floor of denyman middle school to the site of 300 seneca. it is currently being modernized and renovated and expected to be completed by december of 2014 for occupantcy for january 2015. we would like the board's authorization to enter into a lease agreement under which we would designate 300 seneca as the site of leadership high school charter school for acceptance of the prop 1 d funds for which they have already applied. this will allow us to recoup on a 50/50 match basis, some of the $12 million that we are already slated to spend from the 2006 bond proceeds on that moderization. >> thank you, mr. day sis. any questions about this? >> seein

to increase subsubscription offerings and moster and increase the community programs and provide art education to the students of san francisco. we will provide permanent employment to 30 people and construction jobs and anticipate audience of over 100,000 a year at the strand theater and watching performances and taking part in the education programs. i am sure we will show a film from time to time. i am sure we will show rocky horror picture show at this time. we will please tourists and patrons to the area and opening 52 weeks of the year and furthering the economic strategy. we hope that the strand theater will be a welcoming center for the community arts and gatherings and learning. we bought it in february this year from a gift from a board member and we are having a campaign to raise the funds necessary for the renovation. we worked with the planning department and come to agreement on every issue. we have support of the community. this is a great project but more importantly a long-term investment in the city of san francisco. we really want to move this forward and do it quick
a little bit about that. >> yes, we intend to conduct customer notification and education program. components that we talked about previously were very targeted toward the statutorily required opt out. now we're factoring in a preenrollment phase ahead of that opt out. that's the approach we think we're going to be recommending and how to ensure that communication and education that goes with that plan is as responsive and as complete and deep as it needs to be to make sure that we don't have any accidental customers. >> commissioner pimentel. >> what type of outreach strategies do you have to educate the community members about cleanpower sf and how will you go about implement them? will there be community meetings or mailers? >> it's a all of the above approach at this point. as i said we just got our customer education and notification consultant on board -- authority really -- not even on board yet, authority to get them on board, so it's of course developing, but yes we see working with community based organizations, using community meetings. i would say that prior to our
to thank the board of supervisors and board of education for holding this meeting. it's important for high school students and it's important for youth to graduate from high school with resources and for qualifications for going to usc or ucs. also recognizing there are many youth out there who don't know where or how to find their way to resources even if they wanted to. and with this new a-g requirement, students are able to graduate with a guarantee that they will qualify for csus and ucs, but it's very alarming to see there are so many disputes who are off-track on graduating. and i would want my peers to have the support that they need. so if there were more resources, like how these resources were able to help me. we need to make sure that all students have the opportunity, resources and support that they need to graduate. and 2014 may seem far away, but it's these next two years and the support we may or may not get that will determine where our future will be. thank you for your time. >> thank you very much and we want to thank the members of youth commissioner for their tremendo
placed in special education classes instead of given the -- even though they have the aptitude of not even higher aptitudes than a lot of their contemporaries, because they're having behavioral issues, in many cases i believe it's related to the environment. and some of the issues that they're exposed to. and, so, i think it's critical that we start to look at people who are struggling in a more compassionate way. so, since i've been supervisor, one of the organizations that -- community-based organizations that i've been very impressed by is the west side community services. i think that the -- (applause) >> there are a lot of communities, communities of color. they still have stigma attached to that name, mental health. so, it's really incredible that these individuals in this agency that's run currently by dr. jones who does pretty incredible work in the community in the western addition.

of their work actually educating tenants on how to prevent from bringing bed bugs into their units. we also fund president mental health association and they actually lead pier groups and support groups for tenants that have issues with hoarding and cluttering, which is actually something that has been shown to lead to the increase of the likelihood of having bed bugs in your units. so that is something that we are currently doing. our tenant advocates are aware of that. one of the best things we can do of course is prevent bed bugs from coming into the units and we will continue to do that work. we're also hoping to more effectively leverage existing city resources around bed bugs. we currently have 16 healthy housing inspectors that we can more adequately leverage to use around education and also in bed bug abatement work. and we have two health inspectors specifically that work with sro buildings through dph. but i think that that feedback is good. we've gotten it from several groups we've worked with including the apartment association and we'll certainly continue that education work. so, th

there and stay there and then the next family lives there and stays and there and we need higher education for our kids to get out and get a job to make enough money to move anywhere that they want to move, you know? and we need more people to speak up for our community in district 10, because we're only as strong as our weakest ling, you know? and everybody deserves an opportunity to live a rightous life. you don't have to be fearful for going outside because you might get struck by a bullet and don't have nothing to do with nothing. that is not right. >> thank you. next speaker. >> good afternoon i'm jeanise hughes and i'm a little nervous so i will have sai a what i have so say really quick. i was wondering if the meetings could be held here so they could be televised and they can see it from their homes? and everybody should have a right to return no matter what the cause is. that is it. >> thank you. next speaker, there decosta. >> supervisors, this morning i sent you all an email and in that email is a link about hud. how the housing and urban development a long time ago, before
predicting it would be jam san francisco instead of san francisco you knew that folks were educated because of the great leadership at our mta, our county transportation, all of our transit systems and were at the highest level of educating the visitors and others to use public transportation. it will work for all of us and as we build the housing units we identified in hunter's point and treasure island and welcome more people to our great city and we are growing as a result. we are going to have the greatest subway system that can connect to our bart, to our caltrans, to up and down our muni lines. this central subway will be a great success. it will connect to some of the most densely populated and rapidly developing areas, and it will improve access to all of our vibrant communities, and really is investments like this that will foster loyalty among all of our public transit customers while we reduce carbon emissions, make our city cleaner and cleaner. i'm not the only one that thinks this way. you know i'm among many, many friends today in the audience, on stage and i would like to
